Robert Caro reflects on his career in upcoming book

December 12, 2018 - 8:07 am

NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Caro's next book isn't his final volume on Lyndon Johnson or like anything he has done before.

"Working," to be published by Alfred A. Knopf in April, combines personal reflections and professional guidance as Caro looks back on his singular history as a writer and reporter.

"Working" collects lectures and interviews, but also includes new material. In the introduction, the 83-year-old Caro writes that he wanted to share "thoughts" and "experiences" about his biographies of Johnson and municipal builder Robert Moses. Knopf spokesman Paul Bogaards said this week that the book "opens a window" into Caro's career.

Meanwhile, the fifth Johnson biography remains "several years away."
